Guyanese intrigued by Indian science exhibition
Over 22,000 Guyanese from all walks of life continue to be intrigued by the science and technology exhibition sponsored by the Indian Government.
The exhibition branded “India: a Culture of Science,” demonstrates the country’s deep-rooted culture on the topic.
As such, the Cliff Anderson Sport Hall was transformed into a spectacle of technological inventions and concepts initiated by the people of India.
As the six -week exhibition nears its closing date, Chief Coordinator of the project, Madan Gopal said that while there is room for added public participation, the response to the initiative has been “good.”
“This exhibition brings to Guyanese the cultural heritage of India in the field of science and technology that dates back to more than 7000 years B.C,” Gopal said.
He explained that the event may be a once in a lifetime affair for Guyanese, since there is a great demand for the showcase by several other Caribbean countries as well as other nations around the globe.
Gopal affirmed that India opted to answer a request by the Guyana Government and consequently hosted the spectacle as it has an enriching ancient heritage on the two subject matters which are still encrypted in the ‘religion and beliefs of its’ people.
There are panels based on transport, biotechnology, mathematics, astronomical observation and simple scientific demonstrations open for public viewing.
Pieces of music, pottery and arts of elements such as copper and brass were on display.
Some of the items were also on sale.
The audience which mainly comprised school-aged children, was fascinated by the interactive section which is aimed at providing a “fun” way to stimulate learning about science and technology. The children were immediately captivated by crazy maze, probability curve and the infinite well.
The exhibition which is jointly supported by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport will conclude on October 1.
